Revolutionary New CoActiv Solution Displays Images Instantly Worldwide on Land, Sea and Air with WiFi and 3G

tablet PACS

 Bringing the immediacy and convenience of today’s most important new personal computing technologies to the medical user, CoActiv introduces the first ever turnkey PACS tablet that combines instant, virtual, world-wide wireless access to medical images (x-ray, CT, MRI, etc.) in a Windows 7 Professional environment, with a full range of leading-edge hardware and software features—from a 10.1" Capacitive Multi-Touch 1024x600 LED Display, built-in B, G & N WLan WiFi, 3G & EDGE Phone Network, USB and Bluetooth connectivity to web-based video streaming and the latest touch-screen operation.


The new CoActiv EXAM-PAD Model 10 is the radiologist’s ultimate image communications and multi-media Windows PC computing tool.  It features CoActiv WORLD-PACS™ exam viewing technology, which takes advantage of built in WiFi and 3G technology to connect to the user’s onsite EXAM-PACS® server to display high quality multi-modality images securely in real time from anywhere in the world.  Enabling this is CoActiv’s innovative use of the latest SSL secure communications protocol, which delivers data in full HIPAA compliance without cumbersome, legacy VPN technology.  As they are viewed remotely, images can be easily manipulated using a sophisticated range of EXAM-PACS tools.


The CoActiv EXAM-PAD Model 10 features CoActiv’s new EXAM-JACKET™ technology, which provides a visual timeline of a patient’s complete imaging history and one-click access to prior exams, report impressions and full reports as well as scanned data.  With EXAM-PAD, radiologists have complete access to their entire patient imaging archive anywhere a WiFi or 3G connection is available worldwide—land, sea or air.


The new industry-leading mobile device features the Windows 7 Professional operating system and the latest Windows touch screen technology for easy navigation on the go.  It also provides connectivity for a mouse, keyboard and external 1.3-MP displays to become a true virtual anywhere anytime PACS review workstation. The device comes pre-configured for connectivity with the user’s on-site EXAM-PACS solution and can also support other PACS solutions that are capable of DICOM Query & Retrieve (other PACS solutions not using SSL technology may require the use of VPN connectivity for secure exam access).


Designed to meet all the needs of radiologist road warriors—unlike any other tablet on the market—EXAM-PAD is loaded with the latest technology for advanced mobile computing and multi-media access.  The unique power of EXAM-PAD begins with the latest Intel high-speed Atom mobile processor, 2-GB of DDR-2 memory, 250 GB hard drive and two USB 2.0 ports to support easy data transfer via flash drives or any USB CD/DVD drive, as well as mouse navigation and keyboard input.  A built-in SD-Card reader, SIM socket and both microphone and speaker/headphone ports enable full mobile voice communications, while a 3.1 mega-pixel web-cam supports video conferencing technologies, including Skype.  A VGA port and included VGA adapter accepts external monitors and projectors for high resolution 1280 x 1024 presentation.  The EXAM-PAD also boasts a full range of premium technologies such as built-in wired LAN connectivity, ultra-fast processing and graphics technology and auto sensing landscape and portrait viewing, 4-cell lithium-ion battery and universal power adapter/charger.


“There is nothing else like EXAM-PAD on the market today,” comments Ed Heere, president and CEO of CoActiv.  “CoActiv has overcome the shortcomings of other devices by streamlining data input through USB devices and building in support for all Windows-based software and multi-media technology to create not just an advanced image viewing appliance but a fully functioning, state-of-the-art personal computer.”


“What’s more,” he notes, “it is a ready-to-use, road-tested appliance.  We looked at the gaps in other solutions with the goal of overcoming them.”


Heere points out that with Windows 7 Professional, radiologists will have access to the full versions of all their favorite applications such as MS Office Suite.  They can video conference cost-effectively with Skype and easily incorporate remote medical images into remote PowerPoint presentations that can be projected onto a screen right from EXAM-PAD.  In their leisure hours, they can enjoy such services as Netflix, Pandora Radio and Kindle book reading.


“EXAM-PAD could be the only mobile computing solution a radiologist will ever need—for work or play and on land, sea and air,” he said.


EXAM-PAD can be ordered immediately with an anticipated 30-day delivery window and is priced at less than $900 for EXAM-PACS enabled facilities.  (Note: The EXAM-PAD is not intended for diagnostic use but for fast, secure remote mobile exam review.)
